Verbatim SureFire

Verbatim today catered to those who want high-performance but portable hard drives through the SureFire. Every model has both FireWire 800 and USB 2 ports and will run the 2.5-inch drive inside solely on bus power, particularly suiting it to MacBook Pros that need the full 800Mbps of bandwidth. Their casing is both relatively sturdy and scratch-resistant aluminum.

The 250GB, 320GB and 500GB models that begin the line all spin at 5,400RPM and have 8MB of cache. Verbatim's focus on Mac users is evident as all of the drives are HFS+ formatted out of the box and ready to be used for Time Machine on Mac OS X Leopard systems. All of the drives should be available today and carry respective prices of $110, $140 and $180.
